republicans as they enter the second obama administration. first let's look at a time line in the washington post. what the vote sets the stage for. unless congress acts, they will hit the debt limit in its very to late february according to estimates by groups like the bipartisan policy center. william is on our democratic line in texas. what is your advice to republicans? caller: to extend the national data for five years and stop playing party games with the country. if it goes bankrupt, the money overseas, my money, i'm not getting any interest on my money now. it,it's a bankrupt everybody goes,-- the banks, our country, and the world. and we will be back living on the streets like people do in india and in china. that is liberty and freedom, but we don't do that in america. host: that is the democratic perspective. now let's go to a republican in california. caller: good morning, libya. -- libby. that guy is intelligent. i would tell the gop to get the real estate market back on track. i watched a 60 minutes show on how devastated florida was when the shuttle program was take

holding the sessions. [inaudible] the obama administration made these appointments during one of these shortened breaks. that's what was challenged. the court essentially ruled that the program could not make recess appointments during such short breaks. host: the recess appointments that are coming under scrutiny are three recess appointments that were made to the national labor relations board while the senate was in recess in january 2012. the justice department, which argued on behalf of the nlrb, released a statement friday saying we disagree with the court's ruling and believe the president's recess appointments are constitutionally sound. why is it so contentious about these nlrb appointments and how might it affect decisions that were made by the nlrb while these three folks sat on the national labor relations board? guest: well, in terms of contention, you mean in terms of politically, do mean? host: mm-hmm. guest: i guess republicans are afraid of how these members will influence the decisions in labor disputes. in terms of what happens with them moving forward, at this point

years of the obama administration. some spots on facebook -- so we will take your calls all morning on this. also, if you commentary pieces on america's role in the world. this from the front page of the washington times this morning, is the changing of the guard. it is by oliver north. also, in the washington post, today. robert samuelson has a piece called "american century." liz from rockville, maryland, on the democratic line. caller: good morning. i am glad that the wars have ended, but i'm seeing and imperialist role of the u.s. in the world. if there is a humanitarian crisis, it is justifiable to enter the country to stop the government from doing that. but if its is you are just unseating leaders because they're not friendly to u.s. business interests or you are replacing them with leaders who are firmly to u.s. business interests, that it does become imperialism. bowlines are really blurry and we have to watch our step. military industrial complex in this country is really powerful. i don't want it to spill over to the rest of the world and become the imperialists. host: a

obama administration cleave bacon designed to help your system from scratch from washington. i would defend stupidity to some degree, but i think there has been an excess of it on the republican side in the past few years. i think bobby jindal -- the proof is in the pudding. he has been an incredible governor of a state that was not in good shape when he took over. republican governors, republican elected officials need to prove it that conservative policies work. host: reince priebus indicated that he is authorizing an autopsy, in trying to figure out what happened last november. what happened? what would you check out -- what would you tell the chairman of the and art critic of the rnc? guest: i would say do not panic. barack obama 1 -- won the financial crisis in 20 -- 2008. it is not as if we're talking ronald reagan in 1984. republicans have the house. they did not do as well as they might have done. the economy was a little bit better than republicans assumed. they're wrong to think that they could make it a referendum on the economy. they did not talk about the foreign policy,

noise. there's not been an attempt to have stability in libya. the obama administration has been repeating the mistake that the bush administration made in iraq and afghanistan. they were focused on the military campaign but not focus on the nation building. we have paid a huge cost for that in iraq afghanistan. a lot of the arms in the arsenal of muammar gaddafi have been smuggled into countries like y fueled a the fi fresh insurgency. we have taken our eye off the ball in libya ever since the overthrow of gaddafi. that's the big issue from the hearings. host: our guest is max boot, senior fellow with the council on foreign relations. was a senior foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates conventional conflicts. tribal warfare is essentially grow warfare. conventional warfare is a

: he is pretty much a liberal. i think he is grooming himself for the obama administration. i know he is going to be going into the administration for some type of position. he is not a bad man. he did come down here to promote the south coast rail system, which we have been waiting for for 40 years. all liberal issues he is just a little bit too lenient. we have so much waste in government. i would like to see someone conservative in the governorship to weed out all this fraud. we go to work hard every day and we shake our heads when we come home every night. host: let's take a listen to one of the republican governors in the country who has become a leading voice in gop issues. this is chris christie in his state of the state address. he starts by talking about hurricanes in the budde goes from there. >> there is plenty of evidence that new jersey has not let's stop our turnaround. and i'm unemployment is coming down -- unemployment is coming down. 2011 was our best private sector job growth in 20 years. personal income set a record high in new jersey for the seventh quarter in a ro

contested in court and the administration lost that fight. there is a question about how much obama will get behind that. yesterday he talked about climate change and other things. i think the next four years may be tough for energy producers. guest: natural gas has become so plentiful and prices have come down so much that is changing a lot of the economics of the energy industry. that plays right into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than coal begins to replace coal as the primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that oil and gas production is higher than it has ever been and that is true as the economy comes back but there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and a job policy. that is one of the reasons why obama takes every opportunity he can to point out the clean energy proposal. the way politically the white house sees an opportunity to thread that needle between climate change and jobs is to pr
